I Love Thursday #161 Beaucoup Bénédictions
This is the 161st post of things we love for the week. We post these loves each Thursday along with LeeAnna on her blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
Heartening memes! I really smiled when I saw the meme that read, The world’s a better place because of you. Gosh, I sure hope that to be true. And the second meme, Encourage one another and build each other up, seems so fitting for the quilting community as a whole. I have yet to meet a quilter blogger/friend that isn’t willing to lend a suggestion or even fabric to someone in need. Thank you to each one of you who read this. We are blessed to know you and have you in our life.
Jackson 5 mural! The building this mural had been painted on in Gary, Indiana was recently demolished. Before it was brought down a nice photo was shared, and I am thankful to have seen it. The artist really had great talent to capture these five young men as they were catapulted into fame. Surely this painting brought a smile to many a face.
Winter Wonders! Last Wednesday, the night before Thanksgiving, we took Dominic to see the nearby Winter Wonders light show. We enjoyed several Santas riding Harley Motorcycles – there were seven because we counted them. Dominic was happy to be out of his car seat for the short ride, looking out the window with Annie Sue (Auntie Sue). We were surprised to see Cinderella’s coach and horse as a part of the wonders, but we happily snapped a picture. Next year, we might be able to bring his sister along, too.
We can help but love our little bucket heads. Obviously, they crack us up along with themselves. Yay for a big boy bed! It does involve lots of happy jumping time and the Big Boy Truck Quilt is in use. Addison was quite fashionable for Thanksgiving, with a Thankful With a Grateful Heart shirt paired with some Buffalo plaid pants. She’s got it going on! The dynamic duo spent Thanksgiving morning driving around the basement – Batgirl and Fire Chief at your service.
Addison had to apply some chapstick but she was surprised to find that the color was clear. She thought a light pink shade would look great with her jammies. The girl is always sporting a few babies – is Addison in there?! Finally, Colt is a big boy walking between his parents. They are such a cute family. LOVE!
